Nice one, Pedro.
    Did this remind anyone else of the Sri Lankan "catch" in the last World Cup?

    Difference being that was given for somebizarre reason.

    I get the feeling that the Duck will make WC03 an even more enjoyable experience than it would have been!

    10 February, Zimbabwe v Namibia, Harare


    Riann Walters (Namibia)

    Taking advantage of the first 15 over bowling restrictions and chasing a formidable 341 to win, Riann cleverly steered the first ball from Heath Streak straight into the gloves of wicket keeper Tatenda 'Tibbly' Taibu to register the tournaments first golden duck.
    DD rating - 6 lilypads


    Breadcrumb moment - Andy Flower and Henry Olonga (Zimbabwe)

    Both players, wearing black armbands during the whole of the World Cup, have issued a joint statement that they were making a 'silent protest, mourning the death of democracy in Zimbabwe'. As the statement continues, let's hope that your actions .... "may help to restore sanity and dignity to our Nation"

    Puts the whole World Cup into perspective, really.


    Breadcrumb moment - Andries Johannes (Jan-Berrie) Burger (Namibia)

    The beefy Burger, his team in a pickle, deciding that the bowling of the Zimbabwean side is to his taste, grills Streak (surely a typo - should be Steak, really) and Olonga with relish. Unfortunately, with a few notable exceptions (15 from one Heath Streak over) it doesn't last long. He'll be panned for the hoik to midwicket which led to his dismissal.

    10 February, Sri Lanka v New Zealand, Bloemfontein


    Nathan Astle (New Zealand)

    A total brainstorm from Nathan. Last ball of the first over, the hard-hitting Astle decides to pinch a quick single, playing the ball straight back to bowler Chaminda Vaas. No mistake from the Sri Lankan seamer as he throws down the stumps leaving the batsman with nothing but a well-earned 5-ball duck and a 49-over rest in the pavilion to recuperate. I understand that Bloemfontein Brewery has a fine reputation. Perhaps Nathan had been on a visit during the lunch break.
    DD rating - 8 lilypads (the early tournament leader and unlikely to be beaten)


    Breadcrumb moment - Pulasthi Gunaratne (Sri Lanka)

    Scott Styris, eying the vast expanse of the legside field into which he could smash a long-hop from Aravinda de Silva, decides to wake up Pulasthi Gunaratne who was having a quiet snooze on the deep midwicket boundary. Gunaratne decides to show off his all-round ability, combining a little basketball with football as he flicks the ball from hand to head and just fails to convert a four into six. Styris continues his innings to register his first century in one-day internationals and finishes last man out on 141 with lots of filthy slogging and fours and sixes. New Zealand maintain their 100% record in one-day internationals in South Africa. P 13, L 13.


    Breadcrumb moment - Jacob Oram (New Zealand)

    'The Daily Telegraph'
    With Scott Styris batting like a dream, the following conversation is heard....
    <Oram> Hey, Murali. I'm giving you the charge next ball.
    <Murali> Why?
    <Oram> Nathan's getting the beers in and it's hot out here.
    <Murali> OK, Jacob. Let me know when. Are you ready, Kumar?
    <Sangakkara> Yup!
    <Oram> Now!!
    <All> Bye!!!!

    Anna I thought your avatar looked remarkably like Simon Jones myself. Having said that I haven't seen Ian Blackwell so I'll take your word for it. Maybe they just look alike.

    Hadn't thought of the similarity, although there isn't really one.

    Obviously not.......:rolleyes:

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    woops, i just assumed it was matt bulbeck cos of your sig.

    I think another breadcrumb moment could have been Fleming at the toss:
    a beautiful batting track that will slow up later on adn take some turn.
    Bats first, leaves out vettori and decides to try to out pace the sri lankans, and then, when the pitch is really slow let murali, jayasuriya, arnold and de silva have a bowl...
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present
